Blackburn manager Steve Kean remains adamant his side can avoid relegation despite their woeful performance in Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Swansea.

Rovers' fifth straight reverse means they remain in 19th place, three points adrift of safety having played at least one game more than the sides around them in the table. Rovers' remaining four fixtures also provide few crumbs of comfort, with their away trips taking them to Champions League hopefuls Tottenham and Chelsea.

Kean said: "We are all upset by this performance. You don't come to an away ground and try and lose, but if we can go to Anfield and Goodison Park and draw, and go to Old Trafford and win, there is no reason why we can't go to White Hart Lane and Chelsea and get something."
